The White Rock describes Hugh Thomson’s quest for the lost cities of the Amazonian Inca heartland, following in the footsteps of previous explorers and making new discoveries about the ancient Inca Empire.

While working in London Hugh Thomson hears an extraordinary story about an Inca ruin which had been discovered, only to be unbelievably lost again. Gripped, he sets off into the cloud-forest on foot to find the forgotten site. This is the starting point of a remarkable journey into the Eastern Andes of Peru, bringing to life the culture of the Incas and their strange and often hostile world. On the way we hear tales of some of the men who preceded him - Hiram Bingham, Robert Nichols and Gene Savoy - as Thomson weaves a history of South American exploration into a narrative that sheds new light upon a mysterious, alien culture.
